The truths they don't want you to read....

Yes, that by-election is happening today.

Latest word I have puts the SNP slightly ahead, but the Labour Party not conceding defeat and determined to get the vote out. That last part might be the bit that is difficult, and may cost them the seat.

I'm not staying up tonight to wait for the result, as it is going to be an anti-climax whoever wins.

Indeed, whoever wins will have a somewhat pyrrhic victory: if it is the SNP, then the swing is much less than Glasgow East; if it is Labour, then they have seen their majority slashed.

But whoever loses is going to be fighting hard to justify their 'disastrous' performance to the media scrum looking for a story.
